Discounts for Youth Trainees

If one or more of the occupants of a property is a Youth Training trainee, a 25% discount may apply because he/she is classed as not counted for Council Tax purposes. The discount is 50% if all the occupants are Youth Training trainees.

No discount applies if two or more people other than the trainee (or anyone else who is not counted) live in the property.

If a person is a Youth Training trainee what are the conditions for not being counted?

A person will be disregarded for the purposes of Council Tax if on a particular day they are under the age of 25 and following an individual training plan under section two of the Employment and Training Act 1973, funded by the Learning and Skills Council for England.

If you feel that an individual in your household fulfils the above criteria, please complete the Youth Training Council Tax Discount form.
